    HOW UPDATE

    Just a brief update . Most will know we had a good year last year . From May to October there had been just over 20 sessions on the water , 43 participants over 111hours , equating to nearly 5000 participant hours on the water , and that excludes volunteers who have helped out on the water. Most of those sessions were delivered by myself and our welsh volunteer coach , never a healthy situation for the charity . With this in mind this weekend 6 of us will be undergoing 2 days intensive training in North Wales with a BCU accredited training provider , and then a further 2 day assessment at the end of the month . Whilst it’s a big hit on our funds , it will give us 6 well qualified leaders ( hopefully ) able to take out groups of up to 12 . In addition the 6 are spread throughout England and Wales giving us the opportunity to push on and deliver more sessions to more people . Cheers Martin

    HOW UPDATE

    Thanks for the update Martin, perfectly timed as it's the clubs AGM this Thursday evening. Well done to all for their efforts helping others to get over their troubles whatever they may be. Good luck with the training programmes and hopefully the opportunity to get others helping out will give you some of your own personal time back. Well done to all for their continued efforts towards others. 👍👍

    Rnli Safety advice and video links

    As your safety officer I try not to teach old sea dogs new tricks and new members get most of the attention at meetings and using the website however these are a few links to video's and pictures that we should all watch from time to time as a reminder of how risky our leisure choice can be. https://www.rnlivideolibrary.org.uk/play/MJOazGlW https://www.rnlivideolibrary.org.uk/play/GkHBtH3S https://www.rnlivideolibrary.org.uk/play/xotzY45R

    Rnli Safety advice and video links

    last autumn when i was anchoured by Portland Bill, the tide built and chaters moved off. When we went to leave, i haev not seen so much pressue on the anchor rope\rode, wow! to normally pop in to reverse to lift to rope and see the buoy. The amout of welly need to get the rope slightly up was serious, then proceeded with the usual wide arch off to port. The rope stayed so deep for such a long time, i had my crew holding on as if that had stuck fast we would have got the stadard pull round of the bow. which can be aggressive, and with 3.5\4knts of tide, doing 8knts suddenly across the tide would have easily caught someone not holding on out. Thankfully all was well and the anchor lifted nicely, but the tide was impressive!!! No wonder the charters had departed already. They do know thier stuff around there! I am not even sure longer \ more rope would have helped - i was at 90\100m holdins in about 35m. R

    Plaice and gurnards

    9.30 start with Ken and motored east to see Alun already set up. Joined in with a few plaice and various gurnards - tub and grey - and joined by a flotilla of club boats. Wind varied and meant a change of drift line. OK for Ken though he then had three double shots of gurnard and plaice. Wind became uncomfortable and westerly and so it was a steady trip back west for a final drift in idyllic conditions off Durley chine and more plaice. A good day - face caught the sun. Some plaice for tea too. Heard you call up Terrry but you obvioudsly didn't hear me reply several times. A good day out.

    Evening trips ?

    It’s a rare thing to get out during the day so to gauge feedback ideas please ? Suggest 7pm until ??? ( last bridge 11) Area ? Got to be local and keep in sight of each other ( Night fishing can be superb ) Fish supper on way out? More a social evening than anything else ? Thoughts please

    Spring Species Comp 2019

    Weather watch has begun for the spring species competition. The low pressure weather system that is dominating at the moment is moving away to the southwest on Friday but it may not be quick enough to salvage our weekend competition. The wind will be ENE and is averaging around the 15mph with gust's to 24mph. This needs to improve to hold the competition. There is still time for some change, let's hope so.

    Pot markers and floating lines

    During these weak tides it might be useful to know that not all the pot/net buoys use sinking ropes. I managed to foul one today on a line roughly between the Sadler and Dolphin sand. Fortunately I saw it just before it snagged and I managed to free it, but probably only because it was calm, water was clear and I have outboard power. If I had a shaft drive it would have been a different story

    Obviously no councillors own a boat at Cobbs ! If they did it would have been fixed ages ago !

    Plaice and gurnards

    Also a good day in near ideal conditions, it was good s to see so many club members out and about. Pete (Gaffa) was good company for the day and did his bit adding to the catch. We sat it out a bit longer down the Southbourne end but when it went quiet, we made our way back to Bournemouth/Sandbanks where we enjoyed more sport in balmy conditions. Oddly, our only by catch was a small wrasse to me and we ended up with a couple of dozen nice plaice of a good size with only 3 small ones. I did hear you, Stuie and did shout back but you obviously couldn't hear me, I will have to check out the radio; where were you? Terry.

    Catch Reports

    What has happened to all the catch reports? Seems there were a number of members out over the week-end but no reports! I can recall this forum when you could regularly see what was being caught, if anything, but they were reports good bad or indifferent. Now it seems the only time a fish is recorded is a special catch, which is great of course, but the club has many members who are not proficient as others and may feel intimidated to report any fish caught even if it was just dogfish! Just try finding one of those LSD's when on a species hunt! So come on everyone make a simple report saying caught this or that or even nothing at all, we all have a bad day sometimes.

    Spring Species Comp 2019

    WEATHER UPDATE. The Saturday forecast is not looking good. I think that is a no go. The Sunday forecast is a small window of opportunity . Who is signed up for Saturday??? Who is planning for Sunday??? Could be quite choppy in the swash channel if it goes south easterly as predicted also with a swell from the Saturday.

    POOLE BRIDGES AIR DRAFT ....or lack of !

    I had a phone call from the council on the 18th Feb, to say. "An engineer will be on site this week to fix the displays" That's 6 six weeks ago and still no closer to a solution, a bit like Brexit. 😎

    POOLE BRIDGES AIR DRAFT ....or lack of !

    Tuesday 26/03/2019 and there was no sign of the air draft monitors having been repaired . It does look as though some access protection has been provided around the twin sails unit facing the old bridge but the display is still unreadable and the old bridge unit facing the twin sails is still as dead as a dodo. Anyone have any idea of the Poole Councils excuse I was under the impression that it was only going to take 2 weeks back at the end of February😣 I just can't understand what the problem is these units are not particularly sophisticated and calibration is pretty simple .....I almost contemplated offering my almost defunct company's services to sort them out..but I am still qualifying for the non trading period so can't do that. I suppose it's a money problem!!!!😕

    Christchurch Entrance.

    We went out for our first fishing trip today after reading the good advice from Mal & Alun, Before setting out to tackle the sandbar we took a look at it at low tide. I would reckonmend until it settles down that you check it out first, it was a surprise to see how narrow the gap is to get through at the first buoy and as Mal points out the first buoy is about 14 metres inland .
